Why did you join the organization?

There are many aspects in society that must be improved. With SHPE, I can see those changes be made with the next generation of professionals.

As a student leader how important is it for students to get involved on campus?

Change doesn’t start until people go out and do it. If we want to see improvement in our community, and even society, students should go out and get involved with the various clubs and opportunities in Binghamton. Any act, big or small, can improve the lives of others.
